Good, but "Baby Safe Feeder" brand is better,
This review is from: Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder, Colors May Vary, 2 Count (Baby Product)
I used the Baby Safe Feeder brand (they are the original inventors of this product) with my first child and we LOVED it. She loved it, too. In addition to it allowing her to learn to feed herself without the danger and fear of choking, it allowed us to eat a meal without stopping a million times. It kept her totally consumed for about 30 minutes. When I saw this version in the store recently, I bought it for our second child. He's just as enthusiastic about it as our daughter was, but I find the Munchkin design lacking. The clasp is too hard to get open, even before it has slimy food all over it. Cleaning is difficult, too, especially where the mesh meets the handle. So I ordered the Baby Safe Feeder brand again ([...] and it's great. It's so much easier to open because it unscrews (although my child has never been able to open it, as some others have complained about) and it's easier to clean because the mesh bag comes completely out and you can get into the crevice that fits into the neck of the handle. To clean it, I use a dish brush on the exterior of the bag while a baby bottle brush is on the inside of the bag. Works great. Even with cleaning bananas (the messiest and my son's favorite!). Both feeders are great products, but I definitely prefer the original.
